Which?... I must be careful.” In TMDG Rainsford was lost and got trapped to get hunted by the owner. Zaroff was content that he trapped a good hunter with experience which meant a strong competition. Rainsford was to hide in the forest around the island. If Zaroff found him he would die and if he won he would be set free alive, but Rainsford didn’t trust him on that because he was a hunter of men.
The first reason that the men in the story by Saki deserved their fate was because they had been trying to kill each other that night. Ironic, isn’t it? When they had tried so desperately to kill each other, they both got devoured by wolves. But, why were they trying to kill each other? It says in interloper page 272,” A famous lawsuit had wrestled it ( the land they were hunting on) from the illegal possession of a neighboring family,” Ulrich, the head of the family that made the lawsuit, had inherited the family heirloom of hate for the Znaeyms, the neighbors.
The thoughts of Ulrich protecting his land and how tired he is of Georg trying to steal his land; produces a conclusion in Ulrich’s mind, that murder is the only solution: “The two enemies stood glaring at one another for a long silent moment. Each had a rifle in his hand, each had hate in his heart and murder uppermost in his mind.” (Saki Page 3). The feeling of savagery in the two main characters, foreshadows how the quarrel is to be finalized. The planned response to this quarrel does not end in meeting the other and killing the other with a shot, but is instead compromised. The compromise of the quarrel is them waiting for whoever's foresters come and return for them first: “We fight this quarrel out to the death, you and I and our foresters, with no cursed interlopers to come between us.
Another significant event was the death of Simon. Simon was killed when he came struggling out of the jungle trying to tell his fellows that the 'beast' they had feared was nothing to fear at all. The group though was in the middle of a "killing chant" and they had mistakenly identified Simon as the beast and beat him until he died. Again, this shows the savagery coming out of these boys. Piggy's death was equally significant because it serves as an example of how little power Ralph exert... ... middle of paper ... ... have been able to put up a better show than that" (201).
However, Xavier finds love during the war which gave him hope again... ... middle of paper ... ...ks Xavier forcing Xavier to kill Elijah, Xavier says, “You’ve gone mad. There is no coming back from where you’ve travelled” (Boyden, 370). A fierce and emotional battle that occurs between the men, Elijah admitting his mistakes that he has done while fighting, Elijah dies in peace. Xavier killed someone that he only wanted to protect. The loss of close characters contrast personalities between Paul and Xavier, as Xavier has lost someone very close to him provoking hatred and guilt.
Like Ann Causey, stated in Governor's Symposium on North America's Hunting Heritage in 1992: "Does killing an animal primarily to obtain a trophy demonstrate respect for that anima... ... middle of paper ... ...ot the only way to have fun and to spend some time with our loved ones. For me, the worst part of all this hunting thing is the way guys like to brag about it. I’ve seen tons of pictures of men carrying dead deer, ducks, pigs and every other animal. I just can’t see the point of how people actually have the heart to go out there and find something so harmless and just having the need to kill it. It’s like they have this bizarre instinct where they have to feel virile and manly by showing off how they ended the life of a harmless animal.
Everyone knows of the apocryphal evil that is wolves, hunting our children, killing our livestock, taking the best deer. Having a wolf hunting season seems like a no brainer, right? But what if that’s not how wolves are, what if they are innocent, so to say. Should they be hunted? The short answer is no.
We encouraged to understand things from the creatures perspective because of the way he is just abandoned by Victor and the way in which the Delacey’s deserted him and we also sympathise with him when he is shot by the father of the young girl that he saved from drowning. We are made to understand the creature’s anger and frustration because for all the good he did for humans he only got treated badly in return. After knowing that he could not continue living with humans any longer, the creature asks victor to create him a companion, someone that he could interact with someone as hideous as him and someone that he could be happy with. In chapter 17 victor takes over telling the story. He is asked by the creature to create a companion for him.
Literature like The Interlopers, Romeo and Juliet, and the biography of Tanemori demonstrates Bacon’s revenge idea where harm is given to them when they seek revenge. First, in The Interlopers, Georg and Ulrich seek revenge on each other, as a result; they die from wolves and their family feud continues. Next, in Romeo and Juliet, Romeo seeks revenge on Juliet’s cousin Tybalt; his punishment for revenge is being banned and then later on killed, though his family feud with Juliet ends. Lastly, in Tanemori’s biography, Tanemori spends his life constantly wanting revenge on America; therefore he ends up realizing his life is being wasted, so his feud with America ends. In conclusion, Bacon’s idea has a very accurate way of depicting what will happen when one seeks revenge in either literature, or real life itself.
He alters himself for the feelings of the prey and sympathizes later on, knowing how it feels to be a "beast at bay" as he himself is hunted. Also, he abandons his rejection of Zaroff's "cold-blooded murder" of men and commits a cold-blooded act of murder himself. Rainsford has come to know the pain of the animals he used to hunt and finally he changed.
